Lovely classic tailoring. The lighter weight of this wool jacket should make it wearable to work for much of the year. Pairs well with a variety of skirts and slacks. Was a perfect fit except for the sleeves which were a tad long for me, but that happens to me with many petite purchases.

I bought this for my daughter thinking it would be a good beginning for a professional wardrobe...unfortunately it just didn't work for her. She is very petite, and was just lost in this otherwise very nice jacket. It was much too long as well as too big, and the shoulder pads were also rather large. I ordered this in a 4 going by the size chart, but it was so large that I don't think a 2 would have worked either. I guess we'll never know, because she did not like the jacket enough to try an exchange.

I bought a skirt to go with this, same color and manufacturer. But, the skirt was WAY too tight and the jacket WAY too big. Usually I have the opposite problem, I need a bigger jacket to fit my shoulders comfortably. The material also seemed thinner than I expected. So I was very disappointed, I would have kept the jacket if it had fit since it is a very versatile color.
